White Sox starter Erik Johnson, who pitched 3 innings in his first start against Cleveland on Tuesday, threw 4 on Sunday. He gave up 4 hits and a run and struck out five.

"I felt pretty good," he said. "I worked ahead a little more this time around. I got double plays, which helped me out, kept my pitch count down. Overall it was a good outing."

Daniel Webb worked his first inning in relief for the White Sox. Webb, who is competing for a spot in the bullpen, missed a week for family reasons.

White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana reported no additional pain a day after taking a Gerardo Parra line drive off his left shin. Quintana hopes to make his next scheduled spring start Thursday.
